March was one of the best months for the American forex trading venue in terms of volumes. The  trading platform  reported $1.02 trillion in trading volume for March, making it the second-best month in its operational history.

However, on a year-over-year basis, the trading venue strengthened its position with a trading volume increase of almost 14.8 percent.

Further, Cboe ended last month with an average daily volume (ADV) of $37 million. It was 16.6 percent lower than the previous month but 20.5 percent higher than April of the previous year. April 2022 had 21 trading days compared to 23 in March and 22 in the same month of 2021.

Increasing Demand
